Contemporary Mexican
The Iguana Restaurant open air restaurant, overlooks the city of Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay, serves contemporary Mexican cuisine in an elegant but informal ambience. Retractable walls take advantage of gentle coastal breezes and crystal chandeliers add soft light while water dances in the adjacent courtyard fountain. The dining room wraps around to an outdoor patio with shady palms and another central fountain. In between is nestled the boutique Tequila Bar, serving a wide array of top flight tequilas and mezcals, all made within driving distance of Casa Kimberly in the legendary region of Jalisco. Executive Chef Jesús Suastegui has created a menu blending traditional Mexican dishes with modern culinary influences. Fresh, local and seasonal are his guiding principles.

The view is fantastic and the restaurant setting is beautiful. We had the squash blossom appetizer and the shrimp tacos (they were unfortunately out of lobster). Both were very good. The squash blossoms stood on their own, but came on a fried queso fresco that was divine.

For mains, we had the diablo shrimp, salmon and chicken enchiladas. All were very good. The jalapeño margarita was a treat. We finished with the coconut flan and chocolate mousse - both were fabulous.

The service was top notch and the occasion was memorable. Muchas Gracias!

We had a very nice evening at this gorgeous restaurant. The view, the place and the ambience was perfect to celebrate our anniversary. The cherry on top was the excellent service and the complimentary delicious mouse we got because of our anniversary. Thank you to all the staff for an amazing evening. Special thanks to Nestor that told us a brief story of the hotel/ restaurant.

Best place for a romantic dinner, we went here for our anniversary and it was magical.

We also love how well they are socially distancing during the pandemic; all staff wear face masks, guests have temperature taken upon arrival, as well and shoes sanitized with Lysol and hands sanitized with purell, and servers keep a safe distance away when taking orders. The tables are well spaced, they are keeping guest numbers very low during the pandemic.

La Iguana is our favorite restaurant in PV. We go there at least once per week while we’re in town. The food is exquisite, the ambience is lovely and the service is excellent.

Always a pleasure to bring friends and family to The Iguana. The food and ambiance combine to make a very memorable experience. Even well-seasoned travelers are impressed by The Iguana. It never disappoints- shrimp, prime rib, fish Veracruz as well as the usual brunch items are so delicious. A big hit for our group was the chicken with mole- yummy. Add those fresh hot churros, mimosas and that dessert table and you have an unbeatable dining experience!
